Overall, I really enjoyed the program! I’m very thankful to have been a part of it, and I’d definitely recommend it to serious students. Thank you so much for the valuable opportunity!

I thought that the Japanese psychology lecture was one of the most interesting and eye opening into the culture and differences between Japanese culture and my own.

This is a wonderful program that I would highly recommend!

I would say that if your goal in coming to Japan is to learn Japanese (as opposed to just sight seeing) this is a good program. The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and you will learn a lot. We did go on some fun excursions though too! After searching for language programs in Japan, this seemed to be both one of the cheapest, longest, and most language focused programs I could find, and I was not disappointed!

I took part in the koto club, which I found to be very fun! I got to practice Japanese and learn an instrument I didn't have access to in the USA.

Events where we could interact with native Japanese speakers were productive. Other events that let me interact with my classmates outside of the classroom such as the Barbecue provided a great chance to utilize what we learned in class, as well as being fun.
